SPATIAL WIRE CUTTING

Melbourne, Australia (2016)

collaborators:  Ruo Fan Lei, Sarah Lieu Luong

 

Based on the case study conducted by Gramazio, Koehler, the project aims to use 2X 6 axis robots to cut complex geometrical shapes efficiently and fast through controlling the curvature of a hot wire. In contrast to a standard hot wire cutting whereby multiple cuts are performed to achieve a double curved geometry, the new spatial wire cutting project is able to achieve the same results with one cut, leading to savings in cost and time.
